We have thus stated at one and the same time the
frame of mind and the reasons which make men angry, and the objects of their
anger. It is evident then that it will be necessary for the speaker, by his
eloquence, to put the hearers into the frame of mind of those who are inclined
to anger, and to show that his opponents are responsible for things which rouse
men to anger and are people of the kind with whom men are angry.
